The worst part about finishing this book is that I'll never again be able to read it for the first time. ( )

Actual rating: 4.5 stars

My Summary:


All her life, Addie Coleman's lived in a paranormal compound where everyone is born with different mind abilities. She is able to see two different futures she could experience and is able to choose which path she wishes to go on.
When her parent's split up, she has to decide whether she'll live with her mother in the compound, or with her dad, who's moving out of the compound and into the "norm" world.

So Addie uses her own abilities to see her two choices of what will happen if she chooses to go with either of them, over the space of six weeks. Both will have love, loss and betrayal, and in the end she must choose ultimately which future she'd rather live through.

My thoughts:

Pivot Point puts an interesting twist on love triangles. Each alternating chapter is a chapter in the future where she'd live in the "Norm" world, and then the next is if she were living in the "Para" world, each with a different guy.

The main character Addie can be confusing at times. She can be stubborn and relentless yet in the other future she seems to give up really easily, almost as though she's two different people in the two futures.
At first this bothered me, but I think it's more to do with the other people around her and what they influence her to do, rather than a fault in the consistency.

It kind of starts out like a contemporary chick lit book except with paranormal aspects, although the deeper you get into it, the more complicated and clever it gets. It also becomes quite dark in places but I loved it.

All characters are well developed and lovable (well, not all are lovable, but the villains are still great). Overall I give Pivot Point 4.5 stars as it's a great page turner. This is definitely one to read if you haven't already. ( )

Addie lives on a secret compound where the inhabitants have paranormal abilities. Hers is the ability to live out two results of a decision, then return and make the choice. The characters are a little flat and the dialogue sometimes awkward but the gimmick of the two timelines is handled quite well by building up suspense while going back and forth. It's a fun read. ( )

Addison (Addie) Coleman is a Searcher. As a Searcher, she can look into the future and see both outcomes forcing her to make a choice. She lives on a compound with others that have special abilities ranging from erasing memories to detecting lies, to moving objects with their minds, or manipulating mass or moods. Addie's ability to see into the future when given two choices seems to be the ideal tool until she is faced with the ultimate choice. She has to choose between living with her mother or father in a recent divorce. Addie can stay in the safe paranormal world on the compound with her mother or leave the compound with her father to live life among the "Norms." Seeing love and loss in both lives makes choosing a path more complicated than she expected.
